MILITARY PENSION AS PER LENGTH OF SERVICE-AFT CHANDIGARH

In his last judgement by Justice Virender Singh has held that pension payable to pensioners be calculated on the basis of actual length of service and not as per maximum terms of engagement as per their rank.

The decision is based on the master policy of MOD (Ministry of Defence), already approved by the cabinet which is clear on the subject of pension.

That pension is now to be regulated as per the rank and length of service, irrespective of the date of retirement of Military official.
